Now, let's take a closer look at the sequence of shots involving the Pittsburgh Pirates.
|This is the first Pirates pitcher we see in the trailer for "42", but it may not be Fritz Ostermueller.|
|The next shot shows Jackie Robinson in a Montreal Royals uniform, but it appears this is from another scene.|
|That's because the next shot is most certainly Robinson in a Brooklyn Dodgers uniform. You can see the loop of the "g" just under his left arm.|
|The cutaway during the swing shows that we are at Forbes Field in Pittsburgh. You can see the iconic scoreboard in left field. It is 1947, Robinson's rookie season.|
|The next shot shows that Ostermueller is not amused. He is played by actor Linc Hand. Also, look at the attention to detail in this shot. You can see the roof of the Carnegie Museum of Natural History over the left field wall in the background. The scene was shot at Rickwood Field in Birmingham, Alabama. There is no such building there in real life. It was added during post-production.|
|The pitch is traveling directly at Jackie Robinson's head.|
As far as a second Pirates pitcher, I'm not sure what to believe. It makes sense for it to be Ostermueller alone. Perhaps I'm looking too closely. Take a look for yourself and share your own feedback. It's always appreciated. Thanks for reading.
